Saint-Petersburg Tours

City by locals: roofs and metro tour

Tour Description (pdf)

Off the beaten tracks, the excursion to the roofs of Saint Petersburg is an unforgettable and unusual experience. Though it requires not to be scared of heights, it offers to go through hidden places to reach the roofs, from which the panoramic view of the city’s skyline is truly breathtaking. It’s also a local way to spend time for couples which supposed to be very romantic. 

Optional you can also have lunch or dinner in restaurants placed on roofs and panoramic terraces to enjoy the view on the city as long as you wish. 

St. Petersburg metro is considered to be among the dippiest underground in the world and the fastest way for locals to reach one place from another. Some of the stations constitutes a vast museum of real underground palaces with impressive interiors, statues and reliefs, monumental and decorative compositions (paintings, mosaics, stained glass and painting) and numerous labyrinths. Remarkably that some of the new stations are built under Neva river what means that there are tons of water above the passengers what adds more excitement. 

Optional

You can also visit the famous roof of Zinger house on Nevsky avenue with the glass dome. There is historically Book Centre in this building and for some period of time – the office of VKontakte, the most famous Russian social net. And of course there is definitely amazing view of the Kazan cathedral and Nevsky avenue.
